Aunt Fran’s Slap Your Momma Southern Pecan Pie

Updated: Dec 31, 2022

This recipe has been a staple of my family’s Thanksgiving celebrations for decades. I promise it is the best pecan pie you’ve ever had and it’s very easy to bake. I promise this pie is “slap your mama good”! Don’t you know what I mean by, “slap your mama good”? It means it is so good you’d actually slap your mama for a piece! I can’t say I would actually recommend that, because it might be your last Thanksgiving.


1 cup sugar

1 cup Light Karo Syrup

1/2 cup butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

1 1/2 cup pecan nuts

1 teaspoon vanilla


Mix ingredients together until fully incorporated and pour into an unbaked pie shell at 300°F. Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until set and nicely browned.

Note: You may use a pre-made pie shell or make your own using pate brisee. I would suggest blind baking pate brisee so you don’t get the dreaded soggy bottom. Get my recipe here
